You will need:

  • 2 1/4 cup of Pancake Mix
  • 2/3 cup of buttermilk or cold milk
  • 2 tbsp butter (for brushing the tops of the finished biscuits)
  • an ungreased cookie sheet
  • and a biscuit cutter (if you have no biscuit cutter, just use the top of a mason jar or a round glass) 

Get started making your flavorful biscuits! 

Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and pre heat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, combine baking mix and milk using a wooden spoon, until a soft dough forms.

On a work surface, sprinkle more pancake mix.

Transfer dough to the floured surface and knead the dough lightly about 10-12 times.

Roll out the dough to a 1/2 inch thickness.

Using a biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits and drop biscuits onto your baking sheet.

Do you have any of your own recipes that you would serve with bisquick biscuits?

How to Store Biscuits

Keep your biscuits in an airtight container or zippered freezer bag, in a cool and dark place.

Can I freeze these homemade buttermilk biscuits?

Yes! Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits freeze so wonderfully too! If you decide to go that route, hold off on the buttering the tops. Let them cool and place the biscuits in a freezer bag. I like to make a big batch of these buttermilk biscuits and freeze them to have ready to go on the weekends. To thaw, leave your biscuits at room temperature.

How to Reheat Biscuits

Place your biscuits on a baking sheet lined with parchment or sprayed with non stick cooking spray and heat them at 350 degrees for 6-8 minutes, giving them a quarter turn half way through.

Made these because I had some extra buttermilk on hand and they're delicious! Split them in half, buttered them and added a bit of preserves. Perfect little addition to breakfast :)

Why is the butter cold? Are you supposed to cut it in at some point?

Cold butter is used to make the tops of the biscuits crispy.
